What to do in your veggie & herb garden:
Here is our recommendation as to when to successfully plant veggies in September according to temperatures slowly warming up. In early September sow beetroot, carrots, cabbage, lettuce, peas, spinach and swiss chard. Mid-September is a good time to sow bush and runner beans as bush squashes. Late September is a good time to sow tomatoes, brinjals, chillies, and sweet peppers, mealies, pumpkins, melons and other trailing squash.
A lot of herbs can be divided at this time of the year; these include mint, oregano, marjoram, tarragon sorrel and chives. Herbs which can be sown at this time of the year rocket, chervil, coriander, dill, basil and borage.
